Treat Street Fun Facts: Calvary Bible Church

Treat Street fun facts! Thanks to volunteers from Calvary Bible Church, the Fair chapel serves delicious coffee drinks and pastries during the Fair. The iced mochas are a particular hit during the Fair. Did you know that proceeds from their Fair sales support several local ministries – Interfaith Food (feeding hungry families in Nevada County), Christian Encounter (residential care and school for young people aged 16-25), and Booth Family Center (housing for families getting back on their feet).  Thank you, Calvary Bible Church, for all your hard work on Treat Street!

The program combines the efforts of youth, volunteer leaders, and University staff and faculty to create a fun, hands-on learning approach that helps young people acquire knowledge and develop life skills while also giving back to the community.
